    Syria | No humanitarian aid in the northwest affected by the earthquake

    ANDhe northwest of Syria is still without humanitarian aid.

    The lack of heavy machinery and well-equipped teams slows down rescue operations in Syria.

    However, despite the slim chances, the White Helmets of Idlib province continue to rescue entire families from the rubble.

    Infrastructure damage from years of civil war has also complicated the delivery of aid following Monday’s devastating earthquake in the region.

    Many residential buildings have been destroyed, leaving thousands of people homeless. Low temperatures make rescue efforts difficult, while many of the displaced are forced to stay on the streets.

    Yusef Al-Hasawy, a Syrian displaced from the city of Aleppo explains: “To survive, where else can people go? They have no options, they have no houses, they have no shops, where can they go? They can only rest here until let the situation improve.”

    For the survivors the situation is even worse in the northwest.
